I'm not aware of such a document...
If you're using a system that handles packages (ie most linux
distributions) then you should be able to just install the new packages.

if you must install from source - (management nightmare IMHO)
then you can remove the old samba stuff, keeping the conf file and your
tdb files safe.  Then after you install the new samba (and before you
start it) put the conf file and tdb files where the new samba will
expect them (depends on the options you pass to configure...)

best wishes!
